Here's today's response for my A7R2. Note the spelling errors. I guess spellcheck isn't available in 3rd world states and countries. I can't wait to receive the check. Oh, wait. I sent her a phony address and phone number. Oh well, on to the next scammer.

I appreciate your quick response, sorry for late response and I'm happy you are selling to me. I got your details and have forward it to my secretary, payment will be issued out to you and sent to you via USPS Courier service, I will email you with the tracking number for confirmation. I will also like to let you know that moving company funds will be included with your payment due to i might not be around once the payment arrive to you because am going to Hawaii for my Wedding Anniversary once the payment arrive you will go ahead and have the check deposited then you will deduct the money for your item with additional $40 for your Gas and running around then you have the rest of the money send to my movers then i will contact mover to get ready to come over for pick up immediately.

Tell her it just so happens to be your wedding anniversary too and you and your wife will also be in Hawaii. Ask her where she is staying at, so that you can stop by and do a in-person transaction. You'll bring the camera to Hawaii for her. She can go to the a bank for cash. ;)
